About Us—Federal & State Prison Consultants

No one is fully prepared for what is about to happen

You realize that you are facing federal or state incarceration, but you have no idea of the process involved, what to expect, and how to deal with the overall situation. You are experiencing fear, apprehension, and anxiety. You are facing a situation in which you have absolutely no control. You have heard many stories about prison life from books, television, movies, and the news media.
Is it really like Orange is the New Black, Prison Break, Oz, or the Shawshank Redemption?

Jail Time Consulting can alleviate those fears by accurately and honestly providing the facts you need to know and the answers to all your questions. We are with you from the time you retain us until you are out of prison, out of a Halfway House and Home Detention, and off of Supervised Release. We are with you for the long haul!

Most of our consultants have been in federal prison.

They are white collar inmates who know the rules, regulations, policies, procedures, and most importantly of all; they know the programs—all four of the sentence reduction programs—and the changes being proposed in 2015 and 2016.

Our consultants who were not in federal prison were the people left behind—the spouses of federal inmates. They can share the experiences, problems, and challenges they faced with you and your family. These are the same problems and challenges your family will face.

Our Director, Michael Frantz, was a white-collar offender and spent thirty-six months of a fifty-one month sentence in a Federal Prison Camp and Low Security Federal Correctional Institution in Miami, Florida. It certainly wasn’t “Club Fed” by any stretch of the imagination.

"I know from personal experience that serving time in federal prison isn’t easy, especially for first time white-collar offenders. From the very first day I was incarcerated, I felt overwhelmed and under informed. I had worked with a federal prison consultant prior to my incarceration but I had no idea how to handle the day to day nonsense, absurdity, and idiocy of the BOP system, including dealing with other inmates and staff. Jail Time Consulting is a collaboration of many people with the singular goal of helping defendants, inmates, and their families."

Help for individuals heading to federal or state prison.

Our experiences made us determined to assist those individuals heading to or already in federal or state prison.

We separate the fact from the fiction; we inform and educate you on what to do, what not to do, what to say, what not to say, and provide expertise in positioning you for all beneficial inmate programs. In addition, I have developed specific programs and techniques to properly position our clients for eligibility and acceptance into the four BOP sentence reduction programs—the 500-Hour Residential Drug Abuse Program, the Second Chance Act Program, the Compassionate Release Program, and the Commutation of Sentence Program. These programs have the potential of dramatically reducing the length of actual time you serve in prison. Our success rate is unparalleled, no other company can compare with our success rate for all programs!

I made it through my ordeal, and I can help you make it through yours.
